The 2018 season of Performances in Public Spaces presents The Old City Sweethearts at Glen Foerd on the Delaware. Known as Philadelphia's premiere vintage dance troupe, the company will present two original performances with live musical accompaniment led by Philadelphia ragtime and jazz artist Brennen Ernst

The evening will lead off with a flapper-style performance by the Sweethearts, followed by a dance lesson in historical jazz dances including the Charleston, and other vernacular jazz movement. The lesson will be catered to dancers of all experience levels, including beginners. After the lesson, the Sweethearts will open up the dance floor and engage audiences in social dancing, encouraging experienced dancers and new dancers alike to share their moves with each other and fully enjoy an evening of jazz music and jazz dance. The event will conclude with a final performance by the Sweethearts, an original number designed to celebrate the fun of summer!
